Does Enterprise Library have builtin support to covert empty strings to null on save to the database?

I'm using Enterprise Library 4.1 and wanted to save value objects that contain a default value to save as a Null value in the database.

Examples include:

  1. Convert empty strings to null
  2. Convert min date value to null

I'm also looking at the other side, when a null value is returned from the database. I have a wrapper function that looks for a null and returns the object with its default value. I was wondering if this functionality can be turned on within the library.

I believe that there is no built in that comes with DAAB as you've describe. It is something that you must write in your custom code.
